But, as soon as I arrived I saw a sign that said, "No Shorts" and discovered that I was, unfortunately, inappropriately dressed. It was a blazing hot day and had taken me about two hours to then have to turn around and go home.
I was thoroughly disappointed and never had the mental strength to make the trip again.
Until this fall, when Peggy offered to DRIVE me there!
Hallelujah! Someone with a car.
Peggy has this coral pink little number of a car, which will always be a memory of my time at ASM and my relationship with her. I've often forged relationships with the veteran staff members at the schools where I've worked and Peggy is one of my ASM favorites.

I'm happy to be able to cross a visit to the Certosa of my "to do" list while here in Italy.
Thanks Peggy for a lovely day!
Suggestions for other small and unusual stops around northern Italy? I'd love to hear your ideas!
The Certosa can be reached by suburban train from Milan, the S13, to Certosa di Pavia. Then walk from the train station to the front of the monastery. Traveler tip...don't wear shorts! ; )
